General Information on Jabber-based Chat Services at UVM

UVM's Instant Messaging (IM) service uses your existing NetID account and password, so you don't need to create or register a new account. To connect to the service, you will need to configure the following options:

  • user name: Your UVM NetID (e.g., mkapoodl)
  • server or domain name: chat.uvm.edu

Account names are sometime specified like an email address ( e.g., mkapoodl@chat.uvm.edu ). Often this will be referred to as a Jabber ID.

Because you are communicating your username and password over the network, we require that your client support secure communications. The following options may need to be set:

  • Use TLS if available (this is the preferred option) OR Use SSL instead of TLS if your client doesn't support TLS.
  • Network Port: 5222

Some of these may be set by default, depending upon your software.
